    Prisco -

    1. Peyton Manning, QB, Denver Broncos: He is coming off a special season, one that ended with a horrible Super Bowl loss. There's no reason to think he's about to slow down.

    NFL GM No. 3 on Manning: "He makes everyone around him better. He can compete with anybody. He's a coach on the field. One of the greatest of all time."

    2. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: Yes, he got hurt last season and missed some time, but there is no doubt he's arguably one of the two best players in the league. If picking one player, including the age factor, he tops on this list.

    Offensive coordinator on Rodgers: "Has a great feel for where his guys are. He is hard to sack. Makes great plays as a scrambler."

    3. J.J. Watt, DE, Houston Texans: His numbers were down some last season, but he still played at a high level. He is a one-man wrecking crew.

    NFL GM No. 1 on Watt: "Very explosive athlete that uses his good length to his advantage in both phases. Used very well from that four position, which makes him too athletic for offensive guards and too strong for most offensive tackles."

    4. Robert Quinn, DE, St. Louis Rams: At the age of 23, he is coming off a 19-sack season. The Rams think he's only scratching the surface. That's scary.

    Rams general manager Les Snead on Robert Quinn: "The ceiling for him is Canton, especially in an age where you are throwing the ball more."

    5. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots: With little help last season, he still played at a high level to lead the Patriots to the AFC title game. He's far from done. Don't buy that talk.

    NFL GM No. 4 on Brady: "The best football player-quarterback in this league. Still has what it takes to take a team to numerous Super Bowls. "

    Kirwan -

    1. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots: He does more with less. He could take any team in the AFC and win the division.

    2. Peyton Manning, QB, Broncos: The field general lives the game and he makes average players into pro bowlers.

    3. Drew Brees, QB, Saints: What would the Saints be without him?

    4. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings: He may go down as one of the top five backs of all time.

    5. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers: He may have the best arm in football and he has escape skills.

      26. Von Miller, OLB, Denver Broncos: He is another coming off a major knee injury and, like Smith, had some off-field issues that clouded his 2013 season.
      NFC GM No. 4 on Miller: "He has a ton of athletic ability and has the speed to turn the corner. His ceiling is untapped. He just needs to get his head on right in order to reach his potential. When he does, he has Hall of Fame potential."

      40. Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos: He was one of the few Broncos to show up in the Super Bowl loss. He has the size and speed that keys the Denver passing game.
      Offensive coordinator on Thomas: "He is so big and strong and fast, which makes it tough to press him. I was really impressed with how he competed in the Super Bowl."

      52. Ryan Clady, T, Denver Broncos: He is coming off a major injury, and his absence showed up in the Super Bowl. But he's back healthy again, protecting Manning's back side.
      NFL GM No. 1 on Clady: "One of the top five left tackles in the game. He's an excellent combination of size and quickness for the position. Plays with great length and has good enough feet to match up vs. speed."

      76. T.J. Ward, S. Denver Broncos: He is a big hitter who can also cover the tight end. He will bring a much-needed toughness to the Denver back end.
      Ward stat: He was credited with 112 tackles last season, which was the most for any strong safety in the league.

      80. DeMarcus Ware, OLB, Denver Broncos: He is far from finished. Just watch what he does in Denver this year. The talk of his demise is exaggerated.
      Ware stat: In 2013, Ware had six sacks as injuries plagued him. It was the first time since 2005 that he didn't have double-digit sack numbers.

      84. Aqib Talib, CB, Denver Broncos: He has battled some injuries, but when he's healthy he's a top-level man corner. He is big and strong, which helps.
      Talib fact: He's entering his eighth season in the league, but he's still only 28 years old. He has a lot of good football left in his body.

      89. Louis Vasquez, G, Denver Broncos: He was one of the best free-agent signings in 2013. He had his best season at right guard for the Broncos.
      Vasquez fact: He didn't allow a single sack in 2013.

      95. Terrance Knighton, DT, Denver Broncos: In the second half of the season, he was as good as any Broncos defender. He is a power run player.
      Knighton fact: The man known as "Pot Roast" wore jersey No. 94 in Denver last season, but he will wear No. 98 this year after giving No. 94 to DeMarcus Ware.

        I am surprised KC doesn't have all of the top 10 slots.

            Broncos comprise almost 10% of the top 100 players.

            That is impressive considering the mean per team average is 3.13%. Or 3 players while the Broncos have 9 players on the list. It's like having the pick of the litter from other teams 6 times.

              Miller when healthy is as good if not better than Quinn.

                It smells a lot like the Neil Smith signing circa 1998...

                We all know how that season ended!

                  Honestly I think Ware has a lot more in the tank than Smith did.

                    strange to see Julio Jones as the number 2 WR.

                    I mean, I get it to an extent. I was super hyped on him before last season. You can see his freakish ability. But he has yet to be dominant in the NFL and he's coming off of injury. That's your number 2 guy?

                    very pleased to see Bowman as the number 1 linebacker. he's really fantastic.

                            ...and they would have had 6 if we had not stolen TJ Ward from them.

                            Hey wait a minute isn't the Browns a racist name.

                              I wouldn't say Brady could take any team in the AFC and win the division with them. I would say that Belichik could but not Brady. It's been proven that when Brady went down that the back up could succeed, and when PFM goes down, the Colts couldn't play dead.
